While General Motors initially focused on pricier electric vehicles like the GMC Hummer EV, Chevrolet offered the more affordable Bolt EV and Bolt EUV.

However, Chevrolet’s electric vehicle lineup has undergone a significant shift. With the introduction of the Silverado EV WT and RST, Blazer EV, and Equinox EV, the Bolt models have exited production. But fear not, Bolt fans! General Motors has announced the return of the Bolt nameplate.

While details were initially scarce, it now seems only the Bolt EUV will make a comeback, positioned as a more affordable option alongside the $35,000 Equinox EV.

To expedite development, this new Bolt EUV will likely leverage a modified version of the existing BEV II platform. That said, it might still incorporate GM’s advanced Ultium technology, offering a noteworthy improvement over its predecessor.

Targeting affordability and speed, General Motors is prepping a new electric vehicle to take on the growing EV market. Expected to launch roughly two years earlier than previously planned, this upcoming Chevrolet Bolt aims to be America’s most budget-friendly electric car with a starting price of around $27,000.

To achieve this, GM is implementing cost-saving strategies while promising features that enhance both range and usability. The Bolt might be the first GM vehicle to utilize LFP battery technology and potentially include a heat pump for better performance in cold climates.

Most importantly, it could come equipped with a standard NACS charging port, granting access to Tesla’s expansive Supercharger network across North America. This strategic move positions Bolt to stay competitive in the rapidly developing electric vehicle world.
